Had some trouble sleeping because of my blisters, sounds funny but they kept rubbing on the sheets. Ouch! Got up and ran a couple of errands, car insurance over to AAA, and got some gas in my car.
I took Phred out for a walk b/4 I did the above but it took a few mins to bandage my heels so I could get my shoes on. I did the walk and after a few house's it doesn't hurt so much.
I came home after errands and did the vacuuming, mopping, shower stall, ect.
Then had lunch and watched the end of "OLTL' and then "GH". After that I did "The 30 Day Shred" and moved my weights up to 5 pounds. Not sure if I have done 14 days with 3 pounds as planned but I decided to move up the weight today. Took a shower and took Phred out for his second walk of the day. Made dinner, pork chops, veggies (Broccoli, carrots, snap peas and water chestnuts) mix from Steamfresh, cinnamon flavored applesauce and 2 small biscuits. I decided to drink water to make sure I kept my calorie in take within my limits.
That is all for today.

I did my first official hike with the OC Hiking Club this morning. It was in the Irvine, CA area called Turtle Rock, which is located just above UCI. It was a beautiful morning, not too hot or overcast.
There was a total of 22 hikers, and we began to introduce ourselves while we waited for our leader Pat to show up. After 10 mins. pass our starting time, one of the guys mentions he had done a number of hikes in the area, so we elected him the leader of the hike. After about 3/4 of an hour Pat showed up, coming from the opposite direction, what luck she had picked the right way to go to find us. She was very sorry she was so late but glad we had taken a vote to start without her. Here is a picture of my friend Irene and I at some point in the hike.
Came home and our neighbor Jim said my husband Jeff was off helping a friend with an electrical problem. While Irene waited I ran in the house to get her a coupon for her favorite Italian restaurant that her family goes to at least 2 times a week (coupons come in the Fri. & Sat. newspaper). Jeff came home just b/4 she left.
Frieda, the daughter of my friends Rosa & Francisco came down to visit for about 30 mins. She comes over pretty often to play with Phred, for years she has come over to the house to play with the dogs, b/4 Lucy passed she loved to brush her almost everyday and Lucy looked forward to seeing her. Phred still acts crazy when she gets here but mellows after 5 mins.
Later Jeff and my son Frank worked on pulling the wiring for Franks computer for his room under the house. Frank was elected by Jeff to go under because it is not a pleasant job and since Jeff has laryngitis he wasn't going under. He also decided it was time to run a computer wire to our 62" big screen so he can do the updates easier.
Here is a picture of the view looking west toward the Pacific Ocean, towards Fashion Island in Newport Beach (where all the rich people play)
Here is a shot of me sweating it up after climbing up a few hills.

Got up and did my normal morning routine, breakfast, newspaper, brush teeth, and getting dressed. Went to K-Mart and Ralphs supermarket today. My husband is addicted to Pepsi so I always go where it is the cheapest and that was Kame-a-part this week. (A little inside joke, my mother worked for K-Mart for years). Got a few other items there and then headed over to Ralphs. I had gotten chicken out this morning, they call it picnic cuts because it is only legs and thighs.
We already got out tax check back from the feds today, so did the son. So we headed over to the bank to deposit it. Who knows when the State check will come with our state broke but it will show up sooner or later I guess.
Going to bed a bit early tonight because I will be getting up at 5:30am for the hike at Turtle Rock in the morning. Haven't had to get up that early in many years, although for years I got up at 4:30am when I worked at Rockwell back in the early 80's and of course when I had babies to take care of. I will most likely be walking half asleep lol Hope I don't fall asleep while walking, that wouldn't be too fun!
